in UCM clearcase

we will do

1) CHECKOUT ---> It asks for ACTIVITY name ---> we will create an ACTIVITY.

and this ACTIVITY contains all the Modified files and we are deliverying from development stream to Integration stream.

Coming to RTC

There is no CHECKOUT option

1) Modify the file



I would like to know where the change set will come here?

like in UCM we are creating the ACTIVITY while modifying the file

Here in RTC what is the concept?

In RTC, RTC detects the local change and shows the change as unresolved. Once you check the change in, you either choose an existing change set, or you create a new one and put the change in there.

Please see for more information about how the concepts match.

You can think of a change set as the equivalent of a UCM activity.  You create the change set and as you work on a change and add/delete/modify/move files, you check in those changes into the change set.  When you are ready to make the changes public, you deliver to the stream.

You can create the change set before you make any changes or you can create your change set when you do your first file check-in.  It's really whichever you're more comfortable with.

Also, like a UCM activity, you can associate your change set with an RTC work item and basically associate your changes with the task that started it all.  But that's probably the topic for another question.

Hope this helps.
